Schindler's attorney Pat Anderson to appear on Fox News with reaction to Michael on Larry King |Posted 10-28-03
The traffic gal from the radio (I can't remember her name) ... said that MS said on LKL, the reason he become a nurse was because of Terry and he wanted to learn to take better care of Terry
Steven said that was not true and MS never said that in the LKL interview .. that it was his (steven) wife that talked MS into becoming a nurse .. that she and MS had many discussions about it
Here is the LKL part of the transcript
KING: Is it true you became an emergency medicine nurse because of all this?
KING: You're a nurse now in the emergency at the hospital right?
KING: We'll take a break and cover other bases, and later include some of your phone calls. With Michael Schiavo, and George Felos. And we'll ask George where the case is and how far along it will go before it goes back to another judge and ruling on the constitutionality of the law passed in the Florida legislature. We'll be right back.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
Please, graymatter, take a moment to go to the website address in the email below....
( first a bit of background-This website comes from is the woman in London, Ohio, who is on top of property rights and has done much to gather info for Terri's family and for all of us to learn from so that we can help.
She has started the movement to get everyone who cares to do the visible job of putting a light into their windows at night-called Terri's lights-to proclaim their concern and to be a part of a vigil because, in the end, this IS larger than Terri.
She is trying to get folks from all around the world to participate--and I am going to be one of them.
Below is her email to me...thanks!
Lynn in Indy!!!
< name omitted for privacy > kindly forwarded your email to me; it does many hearts good to know that Hosea 4:6 is so true: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
My website is http://www.PropertyRightsResearch.org and the part that has much information about Terri is:
*note from republic*- Graymatter-Would you be able to put the above address into a link for folks here? Thanks!
Please let me know if you will put a "Terri Light" in your window for Terri, so that I may add you and your family to the ever-lengthening list of those with Terri Lights, all over America and the world!
God bless you (we share the same feelings about Terri!),
Julie Kay Smithson
There are folks in 18 states and four foreign countries with Terri Lights burning; let's get the other 33 states to join in and light Terri Lights!
Please put a "Terri Light" in your window for all the world to see that you're praying for a Miracle! Email me at < JSmit10695@aol.com > and give me your name, city and state, and be added to the "Terri Light" list that's growing at an amazing rate! (A small lamp, Christmas candlabra or candle) Terri Lights are burning all across America, and in places like northern British Columbia, Australia, Austria, Canada, and Spain!
Below are just a couple of email addresses that each of us can fire off an email to with our requests and thanks and encouragement.
This is important...when a group of emails arrive at at a media person's inbox, attention is given. These people want ratings...WE WANT THE TRUTH OUT! (And I am pretty sure most of the recipiants of the emails do, too!)
So please spend a moment of your time and concern and passion to help bring out the truth-and send a few emails. Even ONE LINE of your concern will help!
We can preach to the choir all day....or we can become a part of this and do something.
email@example.com --Greta's address---(sugestion) thank her,she is doing a great job, but she IS NOT giving enough TIME to the Schindler family-Larry King gave an HOUR of softball questions (for the most part) to MS....Greta reads our emails...many have gotten personal responses....
firstname.lastname@example.org- (suggestion)ask larry, if he has a heart for it, to genuinely balance the hour he gave MS by inviting the Schindlers to come onto his program...that is the honorable and right thing to do..since the LIFE of someone they love hangs in the balance of people understanding BOTH SIDES!
email@example.com--(suggestion) Tell Geraldo about larry king's gift of time and publicity to the Shiavo death mongers and ask if he will give some REAL TIME to the Schindler family!
firstname.lastname@example.org-( suggestion)Tell Sean that we need him...that Larry king gave the Shiavo's huge time---that a life hangs in the balance of people having REAL KNOWLEDGE....ask if he and Alan would give some REAL TIME to the SCHINDLER's....express great interest in this.....we can help Terri tremendously if we could have Mr. Schindler IN THE STUDIO with his Attorney and speaking to America. (Ask Sean if he knows that the Schindler's live in a trailer outside the Hospice so that when the commander of Terri's life, MS, gives them the grace of a few hours with Terri...they can make the MOST of every second!
At any rate-I don't have anymore media addresses-but I wish we could get Bill O'Reilly interested. He is a Catholic and should UNDERSTAND the way MS had manipulated the priest in this horror story and he should get with the program. Bill O'Reilly is WAY behind on this...and expressed a 'done deal' opinion after the court order to remove the feeding tube....he was wrong...and THAT is why he needs to CHANGE his SILENCE and MOVE ON IT....HE COULD BE A HUGE FORCE! So if anyone has his email address---please post it.
And to make your emails carry the strength of your convictions--INCLUDE your name and address..
Thanks to everyone who takes action for terri.
No he is not helping his brother
But he admits that he only goes down to Fl once every 2-3 yrs .. so my guess is, he really doesn't have an idea of what is going on and is just trusting his brother to tell him the truth
If that is the case, then I can understand him trying to stick up for his brother .. I would want to stick up for my brother also . In the Philly area, family is a big thing and blood is thicker then water.
But with that said .. I would also want to learn about the whole story to find the truth
Please Pary For Terri, They are in court today, Felo's and Michael are trying to get "Terri's Bill" ruled Unconstatutional and have her feeding to removed for one last final time. LET'S PRAY ESPECIALLY TODAY !!!
to encourage her to continue to grant time to the Schindler's to get Terri's struggle, and theirs, out to America.
Our emails show the producers whether there is interest out here or not.
Well THERE IS A DEEP INTEREST OUT HERE and we have to let them KNOW!
A moment of your time will help the Schindler's to receive the publicity they so desparately need. People suffer because of a lack of knowledge....
Does that mean he still had hope in '93 when he placed a DNR on her chart and ordered "no treatment" for a bladder infection that he later (in the same year, '93) testified he knew would probably result in her death by septic shock? Oh yeah!
OH YES, Saundra!! Joni is SO articulate and a very effect spokesperson for disabled rights!! I would STRONGLY URGE THEM TO INVOLVE JONI!!!!
It's going to take this young healthy man with very strong healthy organs a long time to die of dehydration.
I hope everyone reading this will include him in your prayers.
1. In refutation of MS' statement that livein girlfriend cares more than Terri's mother. Mother bought stuffed animals and they were removed. Nobody has done more for Terri or cared for her more than her mother, Mary Schindler. Sees her almost every other day. All have put their lives on hold and come together as family . . . Mary took clothing down to the hospice. Hurtful, horrible thing to say re mistress cares more than own mother.
2. Money. Who is paying atty? Terri is the one paying for that attorney. That money has been taken away from Terri's medical fund. Half million "absolutely correct" out of Terri's medical fund has been paid to atty George Felos to make her dead. He entered pic in 1997. Terri was receiving rehab and therapy until 1991. When sued in 92 for $17 mil (awarded about $1.2 mil), that was used as the argument. He needed the money to bring her home and care for her for a normal lifespan. From that time, not one dime has been spent for therapy. After the money was allocated, not one cent was spent for rehab and $500,000 of the money has been spent on the lawyer to fight to pull the feeding tube.
3. PA: More disturbing about the judge, there are so many viable reasons while Michael should not be guardian. Living in open adultery, failure to file annual guardian reports and plans of action, obtaining guardianship in fraudulent manner (attorney's words, not mine).
4. Family receiving funding from rightwing groups. Right wing is n-word for people who stand in for life. MS should not have said that without research. Not true. Not funded by any organization. Receive donations from terrisfight.org. Coming in bits and pieces. $10, $20, etc. 160,000 signed online petition. Ton of people out there who have their eyes on this. MR: right wing groups are conspiracy to keep someone alive (in sarcastic mode).
5. PA honestly admits to being sort of emotionally involved. Says MS comes across as guy on a mission. ACLU on his team. Has effect on others. Ron Reagan cannot feed himself. Should they tell Nancy to quit feeding him? Disabilities organizations who are watching this are raising the bar on disabled people (MR: lowering it). GF says litmus is ability to raise spoon to own mouth.
6. Asked Christopher Reeve's organization about three or four times for help and he is too busy with other projects. "His plate rather full with his pursuits."
7. Joni Erickson Tada has come in on this. Not Dead Yet filed two or three amicus friends of the court briefs. It changes playing field or rules of what they are entitled to (disabled people).
8. Terri in remarkably good shape. Everything seems to be functioning properly and normally. Parents still not allowed to know medical details. Is "alert" (her words).
Me, too. Dear Heavenly Father please help Terri to survive the onslought of the enemy. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
